Christmas is Coming
Christmas is coming and we are preparing and waiting patiently for this night of wonder. Through music, The Charlotte Chorale brings to life the promises that come to pass in Bethlehem with songs that include “Silent Night,” “Angels from the Realms of Glory” and “Joy to the World.”
After a brief intermission, the celebration continues with the anticipation of the excitement the holiday brings as displayed through songs like “Mistletoe and Holly,” “Come On It’s Christmas,” “God Bless Us Everyone” and more.
The concert is 90 minutes long including a 15-minute intermission and the choir will be accompanied by a musical combo.
With a mission focused on cultural enrichment and accessibility to live choral music within the Charlotte community, The Charlotte Chorale, Inc. also prides itself on giving back to those in need. To help us fulfill this mission, each audience member is asked to bring a non-perishable food item which will be given to those in need in our community through Loaves and Fishes. In addition, we will be collecting money for our “Buy a Biscuit” program at the concert. Each December The Charlotte Chorale donates thousands of sausage biscuits to the USO of NC to feed the soldiers of Ft. Jackson as they travel through the Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square seats 730 and has become a showplace for live performances.
Uptown’s only historic theater, McGlohon Theater was originally the First Baptist Church sanctuary. The venue was carefully restored and opened in 1980. With its stained glass windows and Byzantine dome, this historically designated space makes each event a memorable experience. McGlohon Theater features the orchestra (stage) level and the balcony level.
The theater is named in honor of the late, legendary jazz pianist Loonis McGlohon of Charlotte.
